DERMAPLANING

WHAT DOES IT HELP?

Dermaplaning is wonderful for exfoliating the skin and for those that have thin tiny villus hair and or 'peach fuzz' on their face. It removes this along with dead skin cells off the outer most layer of skin the Epidermis, resulting in healthier looking skin. This treatment is great for someone who is looking for a regular way to maintain their skin or that may have blonde, white, gray or red thin facial hair that does not respond to laser hair removal. Removal of this outer layer of dead skin cells and fine hair enhances the penetration and speed of your personal skin care regimen as the dead skin cells are in the way of the product you use.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT DO?

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation meant to be performed primarily on the face. Dermaplaning is a noninvasive skin care procedure that exfoliates the surface layers of the skin through the use of a medical grade sterile scalpel, and reduces the appearance of large pores, acne scars, resulting in a smoother and more even complexion. Dermaplaning is designed to treat the small, but deep scars that sometimes result from cystic acne. Gentler versions of dermaplaning are sometimes used as exfoliating or hair-removal treatments.

It is great for priming the skin for a Enzyme Peel, an appropriate Chemical Peel and even some facial laser treatments as a prep method. After the treatment, your make up will go on better and your skin will be very smooth. This is a no downtime procedure by itself. Combining it with other treatment options that may have downtime could add downtime with this item.

Although this is not a permanent treatment, the patients that maintain regular treatments are those who will generally see a more positive difference in their skin’s overall quality. It is recommended that the procedure be done every 3 to 4 weeks, which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days. 

pain level

No pain


A risk can be getting a small 

knick from the scalpel.
 

Precautions

No recent sunburns on the area to be treated, no active acne breakouts (we can work around a few minor ones), discontinuing any harsh skin care products 3 days prior to the treatment (Acids, Retin A, etc...)

contraindications

I may not be a good candidate if I have this on my face and or in my current medical history : 

Current inflamed acne; Eczema; Psoriasis; Skin cancer; Active cold sores; Active Infection; Uncontrolled diabetes; Dermatitis; Rosacea; Open skin lesions; Use of Accutane currently or in the past 12 months; The use of prescription retinol within a week of treatment. Or If I am Pregnant or Breastfeeding (No studies to support the safety or lack there of on a group of pregnant or Breastfeeding women has been completed.) 

Post Cautions

You may have minimal inflammation or redness depending on how sensitive your skin is for 0-2 days post Dermaplaning. We suggest avoiding occlusive or thick facial products for a few days, not working out and sweating the day of or after your treatment, to be mindful of bacteria on your cell phone, hands, other items.  Pores can unclog and result in a small breakout since exfoliation brings things to the surface and the skins barrier is temporarily more open after exfoliation. As with any epidermal exfoliating treatment, the skin will be more at risk from UVA and UVB rays, so ensure it’s protected with a good SPF to avoid any hyper pigmentation or skin darkening.
